EKWB Launches Two New EK Reservoir Combo Units for D5 Pumps

EK Water Blocks, the Slovenia-based premium computer liquid cooling gear manufacturer is launching two high-performance stand-alone pump tops for Xylem D5 series water pumps with an integrated reservoir. The two most popular pump and reservoir combo units are now available as EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 – Plexi and EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 RGB in stand-alone variant without a pump! These high-performance stand-alone pump tops are compatible with every standard D5 pump on the market!

The EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 – Plexi comes with a 140mm tall reservoir with an integrated high-performance aftermarket pump top (volute) for Xylem D5 series water pumps. This top offers increased hydraulic performance (up to 15%) compared to stock solutions. It features a fully rounded see-through acrylic design thus offering stunning looks and greater usability which allows installation at any angle within 360° of rotation. Special rubber shock absorber is used to de-couple the main pump body from the mounting clip for silent operation, free of vibration induced noise. The EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 – Plexi comes with a preinstalled anti-cyclone insert. Optional PU anti-vortex foam and EK-HD Tube is enclosed for additional options.

The EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 RGB also comes with a 140mm tall reservoir with an integrated high-performance aftermarket pump top (volute) for Xylem D5 series water pumps. This top offers increased hydraulic performance (up to 15%) compared to stock solutions. It features a fully rounded design with an integrated 4-pin 12V LED strip, thus offering amazing lightning effects and greater usability which allows installation at any angle within 360° of rotation. Special rubber shock absorber is used to de-couple the main pump body from the mounting clip for silent operation, free of vibration induced noise. The EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 RGB comes with a preinstalled anti-cyclone insert. Optional PU anti-vortex foam and EK-HD Tube is enclosed for additional options.
